Tesla Powerwalls v2
« on: October 31, 2019, 02:37:55 PM »
Does anyone have any experience with the Tesla Powerwalls (v2)? My solar units generate excess energy and I would like to prepare for an outage given SoCalEdison's monopoly of the grid. Trying to understand if the Powerwalls are a good option to power the house on peak hours as well, to reduce my consumption on the grid. Thanks!

see the following link:

most important section is under cost savings - behavior:

Powerwall will charge from excess solar during off-peak and shoulder (if required).
Powerwall will discharge during peak and discharge in other periods to ‘make room’ for solar based on energy forecast.

Little over $10k, pre-tax incentive.  It never makes economic sense.  Only for people who are at risk of outages.

On the pricing side of things, the Tesla Powerwall 2 tips the scales at $6,700 per Powerwall retail and another $1,100 for the Powerwall Backup Gateway 2. That covers the hardware, while installation ranges from $1,000 to $3,000, depending on the complexity of the installation.

I can get a natural gas generator for less than that.
